LCS Reformation Celebration 2011

 

The air was filled with music and the heart preparation for worship began when the 1st choir – “Seira Female Voice Ensemble” sang the first song - “Jesu, Rex Admirabilis” at the LCS Reformation Celebration 2011 which was held at Jurong Christian Church. The celebration was further spiced up with the participation of 6 distinctive choirs, solo and trios from the various congregations who sang God’s Story and His Transformation works in and through Reformation, in different languages. We also had the privilege of having our brothers and sisters from the non LCS congregations such as the German Speaking Protestant Congregation in Singapore (DEGSIN) and Seira Female Voice Ensemble who had participated in this special event as well. 

 

A special acknowledgement to Rev.Timothy Huang and the Worker-in-charge of JCC, Rev. Chung Tze Lu who worked behind the scene to ensure the service will minister to the worshippers and to serve its purpose.

Priesthood of All Believers

Priesthood of All Believers

 

On that lovely Deepavali morning, as I whizzed over to LCOR for the interesting talk “Priesthood of All Believers” by Dr Philipp Hauenstein, Head of College on Missions, Evangelical Lutheran Church of Bavaria, Germany, I was surprised to also see so many of our brothers and sisters from the other Lutheran churches there (mainly Yishun – they had chartered a bus to get them over!!).

 

Many of the people who came are already – in one way or another – involved in Missions, so it was very telling the importance each felt about the speaker and his topic to have made the effort to turn up so early on that holiday!

 

I had three main takeaways from the three hour session which centered on the role of the believers in the context of the Lutheran understanding of the Church and its Ministry.

 

The first take way was: We are all priests! We are all priests in that through Baptism and Faith, we are called to live a priestly life. In the Old Testament, the role of the priests was to meditate, pray, give offering, and bless people.

 

Hence, this “Priesthood of all Believers” has actually been given to us! What are our priestly functions? Please see my third takeaway.

LCS Ordination Service 2011

 

November 2011 – To some, it may just be another month that passes them by. But to some, it may be THE MONTH of months for the year 2011.

For the tax industry in Singapore, November 2011 can be considered THE MONTH of months as the whole industry enters into top gear leading up to the statutory deadline of 30 November 2011. And I, being in this industry, can only testify to the fact that November is indeed THE MONTH of the year where staying up into the wee hours of the night or even early mornings (i.e. 5am) become the norm. Further, having supper as “early” as 2-3am just makes November 2011 such a “memorable” MONTH.

Of course, November 2011 may also be THE MONTH of months for hundreds of couples embarking on a new chapter in their lives as they commit their lives to each other in marriage. According to the Registry of Marriages, 574 couples tied the knot on 11 November 2011 while another 607 tied the knot on 20 November 2011. And why should we even be surprised? 11/11/11, more commonly known as the “triple-11”, and 20/11/2011, also known as the “double 2011”, are widely considered auspicious/memorable/significant/hot/you-name-it dates to celebrate new beginnings.

Before you start to wonder how this article ever got into the LCS publication,

LWM - Flood Relief Efforts in Cambodia

 

The rain in Cambodia has finally stopped but not before disrupting the lives of more than a million people and displacing about 100,000 with heavy floods in 17 out of the 24 provinces in Cambodia. Many are still waiting for the water to fully subside before returning to their homes and have their normal life back! It was the worst flood in over a decade, and according to local reports, many homes were being washed away, leaving the people with very few options for shelters. More than 10% of agricultural land was submerged and the only rice crop of many families for the entire year was lost.

In early October, students at the LWM Hostel came to know of the plight of a village where 450 families (about 6,000 villagers) were stranded by the flood for more than a month with no help reaching them yet. The students were moved and wanted to bring relief in some ways to their own countrymen. A special fact finding team of five, including Pastor Daniel of LWM and Chantrea, a student at the hostel, visited the village on October 11 and came up with the following report:
